Overview

As the waste and construction industry moves closer to sustainable practices and away from Landfill disposal, the opportunities to diversify are increasing. B & A are already making strides using alternative materials such as pulverised fuel ash from power stations as fill material. End-of-life wastes are also being treated to generate light-weight aggregates for pipe bedding and block production.

Moving materials under the CL:AIRE CoP has become the first option to legalise bulk subsoil movements quickly while still complying with the EA legislature. Accurately assessing, modelling, controlling, and accounting for volumes and all to a client’s specification and design is core to doing this efficiently.
